At all times our focus is on the provision of a high quality, high efficiency system offering value for money.

Understanding Syphonic Drainage CPD Seminar

We are pleased to offer our RIBA approved CPD seminar ‘Understanding Syphonic Drainage’ throughout the UK and Ireland. The presentation contains detailed information on the development of syphonic rainwater systems, how they operate and the associated advantages of a syphonic system.

Benefits of a Fullflow Syphonic Rainwater Drainage System

  • Syphonic systems require fewer outlets and downpipes than a gravity equivalent.
  • Design flexibility / aesthetically pleasing designs - Collection mains can be routed horizontally throughout the building, no 
    need for pipes to be fitted on a gradient.
  • Saves money - Up to 80% less downpipes and fewer outlets 
    required, resulting in reduced materials and minimal groundwork.
  • Complete control over downpipe discharge location gives 
    increased design and programme flexibility.
  • Rainwater harvesting - Rainwater can be easily routed to collection tanks for future recycling e.g. irrigation, fire ponds and sanitation.
  • Greater performance - pipes are designed to run 100% full of water at high velocity. A single Fullflow syphonic downpipe drains up to 8 times the flow of an equivalent single gravity downpipe.
  • Reduced installation time - Up to 80% less downpipes 
    required and fewer outlets required, resulting in reduced 
    materials and minimal groundwork. 
  • Acceleration of construction programme due to reduced 
    installation time.
  • Syphonic systems are self-cleansing because of high flow 
    rates, thereby minimising maintenance costs.
  • Pipe diameters are generally smaller than traditional alternatives due to full volume discharge
  • Designs can be varied to cater for a range of specifier requirements (for example protection levels & pipe specification)
  • Downpipes are generally located inside buildings which provides visual enhancement in the majority of situations
